WIPocalypse 2015 – October


This month's topic (I'm keeping the original one as I've already answered the one picked for this month): Are there any fibers or materials used in stitching that you’re nervous to try? I dislike rayon threads. I've tried them in Spirit of the Southwest and really hated the slipperiness of them. I could never get them to lay down properly without keeping a strong tension on the thread which in turn made me tense and that's not the point of this hobby. Maybe one day I'll change my mind, but right now I'm staying clear of them.

Still nothing on Bramble and the Rose.

18th Century Sampler is still taking up all my time and is progressing really well. If I can get this much done in one month, I can't wait to see what it will look like next WIPocalypse.

SJ Designs - 18th Century Sampler

All in all this is a very dismal WIPocalypse for all my other WIPs, but oh well.

  1. 18th Century is looking fantastic! I can see why all the others have taken a back seat this month.

  2. Very slightly dampening rayon threads sometimes helps, but it does change the texture somewhat... I'm not keen on them myself, but sometimes they are the only thing that will create the effect I want!

  3. Tracery Dragon looks so promising.... the fabric you've chosen for it looks fantastic!

  5. Love the 18th Century design, love the muted colors. And I'm with you on the Rayon - it is used i L&L's Ice Angel. I'm struggling with it and as a result this is becoming one of my oldest UFO's. It didn't see the light this year. maybe next year.

  6. The 18th century sampler is really coming along. I can see why you have been working on it so much. It is beautiful.
